Fashion Flash Book Review: The Daily Face by Annamarie Tendler
Its been said that if you have a 1 out of 2 chance to be wrong,you will be wrong 9 times out of 10. That’s how I feel about make-up. I can stock up on all the recommended products yet when i try to duplicate a specific look the results are best described as ERIC FAIL.
That’s why I love paint by the numbers guide books like The Daily Face. Written by beauty blogger Annamarie Tendler, it is small but mighty book in full color and packed with wonderful info. It begins with a review of her personal make-up philosophy. Its both organized and genuinely helpful. For example she does not like to use foundation except for formal occasions or when you know when you are going to be photographed. She goes into depth on eyelier options and techniques including illustrating different types of lines and wings.
The bulk of this lovely book offer detailed instructions for 25 different looks. There are 7 looks each for daytime, evening and party/clubbing plus 3 exotic looks for costume parties. Most of these styles are immensely flattering and wearable. The 150 page book can easily be tucked into your bag so that you can take it with you to Sephora to buy the needed products. I ws actually able to compare the photos of the recommended brushes in the book and match them to the brushes at the beauty show. And this time I actually came away with exactly what I needed.
